For about 600k how could one go wrong taking a chance on Nedved I guess? Especially with the Rangers, Nedved would have had instant chemistry with their top two lines and Powerplay… But I don't see this move helping the Oilers at all. There is no chemistry with Nedved and the players on Edmonton and one should expect the same results with Nedved in Edmonton as in Philly. Before long (next week) Nedved will find his way to the 3rd & 4th lines and all the fans will be complaining about Nedved not being a checking type player. I have a feeling the Rangers might still get a chance to claim Nedved off the Waiver wire before seasons end… Just this time it will be Edmonton giving up on him.

I'd pray that he can re-capture even a glimmer of his form, when he was with Edmonton before.
